by SpeedLux

There may not be too many people in this world that really happen to know of the automaker that calls itself De Tomaso. Well, that may not matter too much now that the company has actually been sold. Yes, according to the most recent reports, the automaker De Tomaso has now been officially taken over by a company from the Switzerland, the L3 Holding.

As pointed out by the German automotive media, Auto Motor und Sport, the auction for the automaker De Tomaso kicked off just a couple of days earlier and the aforementioned Swiss company happened to have submitted the winning bid. The bid in question is believed to range around 2 million Euros in total value. It is said that the bid amount from the Swiss company has managed to beat the rivaling bids from Italian and Chinese bidders that are also interested in buying the bankrupt automaker.

Well, unfortunately, there is no clear word yet on what the L3 Holding from Switzerland is actually planning for the future of the De Tomaso. So far, it is only known that the Swiss company will be opening a new plant in the vicinity of Turin. It is said that the Swiss L3 Holding will commence production of a sports car with a mid-mounted engine in that very factory come the year 2021. Well, if report from the aforementioned German media turns out to be pretty accurate, it is quite exciting to see what kind of sports cars that the Swiss company can actually offer in the years to come.
